GET TO KNOW

COBY CREATIVE

My heart lights up when I see a business transform from an idea into a living, breathing brand. To me, A business Doesn’t represent an income, it represents people pursuing their passions, designing a life they love, and making an impact in this world. So it means so much to me when I get to be a part of that process.

Little did I know that when I was learning how to design that I would have such a passion for using design to help people transform their lives and help them follow their passions. We’re here to collaborate, educate, and be a helping hand on your brand’s journey. We want to see you win!
We believe in empowering entrepreneurs through strategic design and education to build the business of your dreams and design a life you love.
We’ve created our studio around the idea of  designing with strategy while educating throughout the process. We believe in using strategy and psychology rooted in human decision making to design.
We’d love to help you with the design and creative direction aspect so that you can have one less thing to stress about, because we know how hard running a business is!

OWNER + DESIGNER

Coby Creative is less about me and more about you and the things we can create together to grow your business. I can’t wait to collaborate with you to create a love story between your brand and your audience. Between projects (which is rare because I love working),  you’ll find me on my road bike or peloton (cody rigsby is my fave!), at the beach, cuddled up reading a book, or  learning something new.

My experience is enhanced by higher education - a Bachelor’s in Design and Media Arts from UCLA, in-house designer for multiple corporations, and designer for a print studio.

 

I’ve worked with clients ranging from wedding industry professionals, to designers & digital creators, to e-commerce, to real estate, to sports industries, to finance, to corporate franchises.

 

My work at in-house print agency taught me all the ins and outs of printing, including digital printing, packaging, spot colors, bleed and trim marks, die cutting, and so much more. This is also the studio that inspired me to be my own boss. 

 

My work at the in-house corporations has taught me about collaboration, processes, and strategy. 

 

If you’re looking to outsource and need someone to take the lead on your next brand project, you’re looking at the girl for the job.

This business is fueled by passion.

 

I’m obsessed with seeing how graphic design can light up a creative entrepreneur, breathe fire into their spirit, and revitalize the passion they have for their business. It truly takes your dreams from your head into a visual space to share and inspire others.  

 

I have loved every second of the relationship-building aspect that comes from working with clients. 

 

I love seeing people succeed, so you'll always have someone in your corner whether we're chatting about Grey's anatomy or needing a color palette for your latest project, I'm here to cheer you on or give advice.
